I have a program that runs on Ubuntu (14.04) whether I am in the terminal or not. This program relies on a vpn connection, for which I am using vpnc (cisco).
I have added vpnc to my reboot and start up processes, and my program works fine when I reboot (and soon thereafter log in to the terminal). But when I exit the terminal, I lose the vpn connection and the program throws an exception.
Can anyone help me figure out how to keep the vpn connection running even after I log out of the terminal?
